Summary: Previously I had other brands of food processors, parts of which broke fairly early on and did not do a great job. So I decided to invest in a Cuisinart this time. I have not been disappointed. I keep this on the counter because I use it several times a week for chopping, grating, slicing and mixing. This food processor and my Vitamix are among my favorite tools and make food prep, cooking and baking a breeze.
Summary: As a technologically challenged person (meaning I don't read the directions carefully enough) I Almost broke this the first time I used it. Luckily a friend was with me and saw that I had the cover on backwards. Yes, I did watch the video, but it really didn't get into the stupid details that I need to have. Enough about me, the processor works great. I tried making fake soft serve ice cream, using only fruit. You don't have to buy that $50 device.
Summary: The food processor works pretty well. My main 'complaint' would be that it doesn't come with many attachments; and when you add them together, they are pretty expensive. Had it less than 6 months and the bowl broke at one of the attach points so I had to get a new one.
Summary: I really liked the product but the motor stopped working after just 3 months . It's costing me $40 to transport to Cuisinart and back for repairs and expected to take two months. Doesn't seem reasonable for such a recent purchase.
Summary: This was the first cuisinart I bought since 1993 ish. Wow, what great improvements they have made to their design in the past 20 years. I really appreciate the movement of the bowl onto the base and the three point locking system instead of two. Also, I have noticed it is easier to use the feeding tube for larger items now. I am so happy my first machine finally died, so I can now enjoy this one! Super happy with it!
Summary: There are certain brands you can't go wrong with, and in my experience Cuisinart is one of them. This food processor is perfect for my uses. It's just the right size and does a perfect job of pureeing, grinding, slicing, and shredding. It's easy to use and cleans up easily. You can put the blades in the dishwasher, which I would recommend because they are sharp as a razer blade and I sliced my thumb when I attempted to hand wash. Lesson learned: NEVER touch the blade.
Summary: Can't think of one negative thing to say about this food processor. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. Watched the video, set up the processor and started chopping, slicing and grating! Haven't used the dough blade yet. Only thing that wasn't in video or instructions is that there is only one way to put the bowl on. If the handle isn't facing the right way there is no power connection. Once figured out, it's a piece of cake...
Summary: I had an old La Machine from the early 80's that had seen better days. After much research, I ordered the Cuisinart Prep 11 Plus food processor. What a great addition to my kitchen! This is a slick machine. Very efficient, much faster and sturdier than my original food processor. It's a breeze to clean and look great on my counter. So glad I purchased this.
Summary: This is my second Cuisinart food processor. I bought the first one about 20 years ago, and honestly the motor on the old one still works fine, but I was having problems removing the bowl from the base. It kept getting stuck. This new one is basically the same as my old one, but is designed to give me better leverage if the bowl gets stuck. It also has a wider feeder opening so I can fit larger whole fruits and vegetables.
Summary: The processor works well but some aspects of it are frustrating. When your shredding hard to medium cheese, sometimes the cheese will get stuck between the blade and lid and rolls around. Frozen chopped spinach will lump up and raise the chopping blade above the bottom. Fresh kale was copped perfectly though even when loading the bowl to over flowing, it all came out evenly chopped. Overall I like it, But not sure about the price point.
